Everyone has and is entitled to have (their) preferences. For instance some women will not date men who are shorter than them, bald, have missing front teeth, bad facial skin, or whatever. Each of us forms our opinion or "judges" people to a certain extent the moment we see them, interact with them, or observe their behavior.
I can't think of any person who honestly would say "Looks don't matter at all to me." or "I will date anyone." Everyone draws a line in the sand. Everyone has their "ideal" mate in mind. As is often said "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
The incredible wonderful thing about this planet is there are over 7 billion people on it! Odds are in everyone's favor that there are people who are "into" your type!
Go to any grocery store, Wal-Mart, mall, park, amusement park, beach, movie theatre, nightclub, or church and you will see people of all shapes, sizes, and colors with a (mate/spouse) holding hands, kissing, or simply running errands. It's not uncommon for some people to ponder: "How did he get her?" or "Why would he choose her?" It's proof before your eyes that not everyone is looking for the same type of person!
The best advice is to be yourself, look your best, (which makes you feel good), and not worry about what others think. You want to be with someone who sees you as (their) type. Awhile back I wrote a hub about all the nonsense of "the one." https://hubpages.com/relationships/thereismorethan...
